Dundalk date for Dansant

Gerard Butler has earmarked a race on the all-weather track at Dundalk for the well-travelled Dansant.

The six-year-old has already raced in the United States and Dubai, won a conditions race at Deauville in August and finished fourth in a Group Two contest in Turkey a few days ago.

"Dansant is going for a race at Dundalk, the Diamond Stakes on October 1 (a Breeders' Cup Challenge race)," said Butler.

The trainer is also planning a trip abroad with Pachattack, a Listed winner at Newbury during the summer who is an experienced flyer herself, having finished sixth in last month's Beverly D Stakes at Arlington Park.

He went on: "We're going to keep Pachattack back for the EP Taylor at Woodbine on October 16. She was very, very unlucky in America but she has come back to me and is in very good form."
